15 mins

for a quick and easy hairdo
my total was 12 sets of hairstick for a combined price of 3 dollars

the black hairsticks took a pair of chopsticks, black spray paint, silver ribbon, chain ribbon, and a hot glue gun

the neon hairsticks (yellow, green, orange, and pink) took a pair of chopsticks and my neon colored nail polish (best 5 bucks i ever spent)

  • Step 1

    first you need your chopsticks (you can get them free at an asian restaurant or from the foreign foods aisle at a grocery store)

    once you have the chopsticks you want to sharpen the ends with a pencil sharpener (this prevents tearing out you hair when you try to put them in)

  • Step 2

    next you may want to cut the chopsticks shorter because they may be longer than the average hairstick (i tend to skin this step because i dont mind, plus im lazy)

  • Step 3

    one trimmed you can paint them any way you want in any style you want (dont forget the embellishments: wire, ribbon, beads, charms, or whatever you choose)
